It's unclear from MAINTAINERS if this is formally enough for the patch to
be applied but under the circumstances (pretty obvious patch, Reviewed-by
more than one person, including the X86 MEMORY MANAGEMENT maintainer even
if mm.c isn't strictly under that for some reason) I've added my own
Revieed-by and applied, hopefully that is ok.

Perhaps there should be a patch to MAINTAINERS to add arch/x86/mm.c to the
relevant subsection? (Or maybe the file is just horribly named?)
